that the spying on chancellor merkel and other world leaders stopped after the obama administration launched an investigation. "the wall street journal" quoted a senior u.s. official as saying the nsa made the surveillance decisions. the newspaper says the official account of what happened suggests president obama went nearly five years without knowing about the spying on world leaders. it reports obama was briefed on broader intelligence collection priorities, but didn't make decisions on specific targets. and it says the president only learned of the spying after his administration launched internal and external probes of national security agency operations a few months ago. the decision followed revelations by former nsa contractor, edward snowden, who said agents had been secretly gathering the phone and internet data of private citizens. u.s. officials tell "the wall street journal" that american agents have suspended spying on merkel and other world loaders, but they say the agency is still monitoring other leaders because some of the programs are producing useful intelligence. >>> smo

. members of the obama administration including the president now saying they're sorry. does that restore faith in government? what does that really mean to the people of america? >> you know, at this point i think we've gone from the eisenhower era 50 years ago where 85% of americans said when they were asked do you believe in the government will do the right thing most of the time or all of the time, 85% said most of the time or all of the time. now it's over 85% say none of the time or little of the time. so even before this debacle with the website it was really at such a low ebb. >> the thing that struck me yesterday, here's kathleen sebelius getting her butt kicked in congress, right, and then you have president obama in boston holding an obama care rally, he's smiling, saying go team, we're going to get it done, and you look at that as a citizen of this country, and you really don't know what to believe, and isn't that just blending or isn't that, isn't that garnering more distrust in government because we don't know what to believe. >> i think you're right. the way you'd roll some
to be separated by the obama administration. >> he adds that he hopes this will force the administration to allow congress to interview survives of the ben benghazi attack. >>> this is a fox news alert. new details trickling out about fry dye's deadly shooting at los angeles international airport. the accused shooter paul ciancia is hospitalized and authorities say he has been unresponsive. federal prosecutors have filed murder charges against him. dominic is outside l.a.x. with more. dominic? >> hi there, shannon. the associated press reporting in the last few minutes quoting an unidentified law enforcement official saying that as he was arrested, the gunman, suspected it to be paul ciancia, the 23-year-old from new jersey said to them he acted alone and he had been dropped off at the airport by a friend. right now according to that law enforcement official he is sedated. we understand he is at the ronald reagan ucla medical center and he is -- as the fbi was saying he is unresponsive. he has an armed guard apparently standing next to him. and details of really what happened in the airport as he
own? that makes no sense. why would they want to do that? the obama administration wrote these regulations so strictly that almost no individual health insurance policy in the market today qualifies. i think it's probably going to impact about 80%, 85% of the individual policies ultimately over the next one-year renewal cycle. >> what he's alluding to is it's basically an obamacare squeeze. they're squeezing employers who know coming in the year ahead they're going to have to provide insurance if you work over a number of hours. what those companies are doing is reducing hours. insurance companies, they make small adjustments on a yearly basis, people renew their individual plans, they make one little change and they can't comply with obamacare. they're then squeezed dropping the americans that are now squeezed without care or left to fall into obamacare. >> it's been awhile since i had an individual plan. my brother has had individual plans. they change every year. the deductible goes up, goes down. sometimes you swap companies. a lot of people are saying i feel bad for
the obama administration benghazi. nest about think about that for a moment. a supermajority of americans believe they have been misled by their government about what happened in benghazi. this is remarkable. the american people know how significant it is that ambassador stevens, the president's personal envoy to libya, was the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in four decades on september 11, 11 years to the day that nearly 3,000 people were killed by al aeda terrorists. the american people intuitively understand that a plot of this scale was not spontaneously inspired, as claimed by the administration's now infamous talking points. the american people also know that it's remarkable that no effort was made by washington to rescue the americans in benghazi or dispatch a hostage rescue team after the ambassador went missing that night. i think the american people also wonder just what the c.i.a. was doing in benghazi. was it involved in the collection and transfer of weapons to foreign countries, possibly to support the syrian rebels, and could some of those weapons have fallen i
